A Day In The Life: Mash Up Master Girl Talk
Nothing gets me going more than listening to Gregg Michael Gillis (better known as Girl Talk) dork out about how he samples 400 tracks in just one live show.
His “port-a-potty” lifestyle doesn’t stop Gillis from producing (no longer “Illegal”) art. Still, if you ever wondered why it seems like forever since a new Girl Talk album was released (I have!), it’s because to use so many digital samplings requires two years between each.
Watch as team Girl Talk prepares a rager performance, for which he wraps his feet because of terrible blistering. He’s also always worried about dehydration during performance, proving DJing is not some easy button-pushing nonsense, people.
